    [User 509088: "i notice i'm not always warned that my posts are potentially career destroying and i wonder how and if this is determined by sa."]

    I have never received such a warning. Must be because I am retired. Or perhaps because I have AdBlock and Ghostery running on Firefox, set to maximum effect.

    Any particular view on evolution that any thinker has is largely determined by whatever it is that they think is evolving.

    Someone else stated this idea, but I cannot recall the citation (Carter Phipps, perhaps?)

    "The job eliminations [1,475] will come across Turner's (NYSE:TWX) news, business, and sports divisions."

    So the "news" business is CNN whose viewership is way, way down. The "sports" division would be TBS but what channel is the "business" division?

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Hewlett-Packard Plans To Split In Two [View article]
    As a rule of thumb, the US takes in revenue to the tune of $2.5T per year and spends $3.5T per year, making the annual deficit about $1T per year. The amounts spent can be roughly divided into 3 categories: 1/3 for Defense, 1/3 for Social Services and 1/3 to service the debt.

    Our debt is over $17T of which $1T is unpaid student loans.

    These numbers do not include unfunded obligations (such as unfunded public service personnel union pension and benefits). If these obligations were included in the debt, total USA debt would be over $100T.

    [al roman: "To hermetically seal the threat is extraneous and tedious enough at this stage.The worry comes when area's quarantined become public knowledge,we have to work with whom we have.:]

    Be careful of what we wish. A total quarantine is one step away from martial law.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Argentina Held In Contempt By NY Judge [View article]
    May I make a suggestion?

    How about re-instituting a face and personality with WSB/MKN? When I first joined, Rachel Granby ably lead this team, then Yigal took over. Now that Yigal is gone, we have to look at a coffee cup as the face of WSB/MKN. Participation is down, YoY, so perhaps a new personality is in order.

    And I'm not at all recommending Peter Palms.

    Over and out.

    [Tony Pow: "Scott (sic) has nothing but the drunken dancing males in skirts, showing their hairy legs and blowing their horns at the same time. What a beautiful sight! Hope you can take this offensive joke."]

    Our Clan Fraser hails from Inverness/Aberdeen, Scotland. You've got the family down, with the exception of blowing pipes rather than horns. It is my understanding the invader Vikings were on the horns.
